New Hymn Books

30 August 2019

screen 0New Hymn Books for Holy Innocents Church
Holy Innocents Church is raising money for new hymns books so that we will have have the same edition across the Benefice. This will make the  work of our choir leader and organists a lot easier and both churches will be able to enjoy a full range of traditional and modern hymns.
Anyone can give to the Hymn Book fund or donate one or more books in memory of a loved one.
The cost is £10 per book and this includes a plaque with a commemoration in the front of the book.
Donations may be given to Tim Frost  or Kathy Drakes or brought to any of our services.
We are hoping for good response as we would like to have the new hymn books in time for Christmas.
